We love to tie a little something special on the bride and groom’s chairs, whether it is as simple as a double faced satin ribbon tied in a bow, a trinket that ties into the design or an embellishment, like a hand embroidered sash. Sweet details like these bring the design to life!
It might be sacrilege, but I’ve never really loved mint juleps (gasp). This bourbon slush, though? The best. Happy derby weekend!
Hope you have a happy Easter weekend. Below, a few links to Easter goodies!

I had the good fortune of discovering Claire Hill’s work last year at Fraîche, where her Richmond prints are sold (second image from the top). Claire has been an artist for as long as she can remember. After earning a BFA with a concentration in painting, she returned to her hometown of Richmond, where she has focused on producing custom pen & ink architectural drawings, paintings, portraits and custom calligraphy & illustration for weddings. Of her wedding work, Claire says custom invitations with illustrations are her favorite kind of commission because “they are more fun and leave a lot of room for creative freedom!” I just love all of the details Claire incorporates into her work, giving each piece a unmistakable sense of place — the dogwoods, cardinals and architectural elements. And the energy and happiness of her calligraphy is contagious! Thanks for sharing your work, Claire! xo
